-- Canada's men's and women's hockey teams picked up their rings on Monday at a ceremony at Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium marking their double gold victory in Vancouver.

"It's always nice to get a ring," Sidney Crosby said. "It's always a real good sign."

Hayley Wickenheiser said the women have, in the past, opted for smaller rings than the men. This time they went all out.

"I don't know how often I am going to wear it," she said with a laugh, looking down at the glittering monstrosity on her right hand.

"But it is a beautiful ring to display."

The captains of the two teams rode into the stadium on military vehicles as a tribute to the Canada's troops.

Jonathan Toews, one of three Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on the gold-medal team, admitted he will have a bit of a dilemma when he gets his Cup ring later this year.

"I don't know if I can fit them both on my hand at the same time they are so big," he said.

 

-- Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry suffered from a chronic brain injury that may have influenced his mental state and behaviour before he died last winter, West Virginia University researchers said Monday.

The doctors had done a microscopic tissue analysis of Henry's brain that showed he suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

Henry died in December, a day after he was ejected out the back of a pickup truck his fiancée was driving near their home in Charlotte, N.C.

 

-- Michael Vick was interviewed by a detective Monday about a shooting that took place outside a nightclub where he had celebrated his birthday, a Virginia Beach Police spokesman said.

The spokesman said the Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback is not a suspect, and no arrest has been made.

 

-- The Phoenix Coyotes liked what they saw in Wojtek Wolski in the final quarter of the regular season and signed the young forward to a two-year contract Monday. The 24-year-old Wolski, acquired March 3 in a trade with the Colorado Avalanche, had 23 goals and 42 assists in 80 games last season. According to reports, the deal is worth US$3.8 million per season.
